The Step By Step Process Of Selling Your Gladstone House In Only A Week

Did you know that it is possible to sell your Gladstone house in only a week? When you work with kcmoHomeBuyer, you will get a great price and fast closing. We will work with you on your schedule to ensure a smooth and seamless transaction. 

There are many situations in which a fast and direct offer is a better choice over a traditional property listing. People who need to sell before a specific date, who don’t want to deal with repairs, or who need cash right away, a direct sale is a logical way to go. Working with kcmoHomeBuyer can help homeowners navigate any difficult situation. People who need to sell within a certain timeframe will find great benefits when selling their Gladstone homes directly to kcmoHomeBuyer.

For example, do you need to sell for any of these reasons?

  • You’re worried about foreclosure and the bank taking your home
  • You are tired of being a landlord, constantly dealing with bad tenants
  • The house isn’t big enough for your growing family
  • The house is too big and you’re tired of maintaining so much space
  • You are getting a divorce and would appreciate a fast sale
  • There is another investment you’d like to make that is contingent on the sale of your current property
  • You have tax problems that have prevented you from selling in the past
  • There are liens against the house and you don’t have the means to clear them up
  • There are code violations plaguing the property that you don’t want to take care of
  • You no longer like the neighborhood because it has been built up or become run down
  • You have low equity and aren’t sure how to get out from under your house
  • You’re dealing with a sudden illness that has become expensive and burdensome
  • You’ve suffered the loss of a loved one and don’t wish to stay in the house any longer

These are just a few of the reasons why people want to sell their houses in only a week. Our team can make it possible for you no matter how difficult your situation may seem or how quickly you need to close.

Get The Facts

Before choosing how to sell your house, we encourage you to take a look at all of your selling options. While listing your house may make you think you are getting more money, there is no guarantee that it will sell for that much. Plus, when you list with a Gladstone real estate agent, you’ll have to continue paying the holding costs for the house. You will also have to spend money on repairs, cleaning, staging, and marketing. When all is said and done, you will owe your agent about 6% in commissions and another 2-5% in closing costs. All in all, the traditional listing process can be more expensive than you may think. According to Bankrate, home sellers should expect to spend about 10% of the final sale price toward closing costs. It is important to explore all of your selling options while being careful to account for all of the expenses each selling method will incur.

Instead of going through the traditional model:

  • Interview with a Realtor,
  • Get a list of updates and repairs to make,
  • Get said repairs and updates made,
  • Clean and Stage the House,
  • Sign Listing Agreement,
  • Realtor plasters all over the internet (If puts it on MLS and all over the internet – hopefully they do a good job)
  • Have people looking at your house for a few weeks or months,
  • Get an offer, negotiate and Sign a Sales Agreement that often wants you to pay the buyers closing costs (we usually spend $3,000 to $5,000 on this)
  • Buyer inspects the home ans sends you a list of repairs (we usually end up spening $1500 to $3000 on average on these repairs)
  • You hire a contractor or contractors to make the repairs.
  • House is appraised and hopefully comes in high enough, if not, you lower your sales price or start over
  • You move out and close the next day (we hope, I have had sellers with everything in a moving van and the closing didn’t happen, and just this past week we had a buyer’s financing fall through so our closing was canceled)
  • You get a check
  • Process 2 to 3 months plus depending on how long it takes to get the house ready to sell, find a buyer, and closing goes smoothly.
